The date // Pickling eggs.
The place // Home in the snow!
The reason // Stir crazy taken to a whole new level… oh, and St. Patrick’s Day, right?

Here we are, inside again in the snow! But making the best of it by pickling our little beet-red hearts out…

Okay, so it’s not just the snow. Our plan to pickle eggs together actually goes back to our last night in New Orleans, when we found ourselves at a cute little bar with the best farm fresh charcuterie platter. It included something I still can’t believe I’d never had — a pickled egg.

Mark is used to pickled eggs — since apparently they’re a lot more common in bars here and just up north in Pennsylvania they’re pretty much an institution. But somehow I’d managed to miss out, and it was love at first bite.

We vowed to make some of our own as soon as we got home… and our cold snowy Sunday seemed like just the right time.

Unfortunately we came home with the wrong beets, so our solution came out a little less traditionally pretty and red. But that doesn’t mean they’ll be any less tasty — I can’t wait to break them open and see how they turned out!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Have you ever had pickled eggs? Or maybe even pickled them yourself? They’d be the perfect addition to a St. Patrick’s Day meal.

      No it was so easy!! Just soft boil the eggs, prep the broth, put them both together and wait! We used a recipe from Food Republic online. :)

    I heard about you guys getting more snow! Crazy! Hopefully it doesn’t make it’s way up here, but it’s still really cold! And pickled eggs? I wonder how that tastes! Now I’m curious and really want to try! Hope your week is starting off great, Laicie!

    My boyfriend adores pickled egg, and I’ve never tried, though I love anything with vinaigrette. It’s on the tick list :)

    I’ve never had pickled eggs, but I love everything else pickled, maybe I’ll have to try them! Looks like you guys had fun, despite being stuck inside by the snow. Here’s hoping spring comes soon! :)
